Lookin' Great *SFYTT*

ETA: I totally forgot to mention that this week's SFYTT is sponsored by The Stamping Boutique! Check it out here for all of the info! I didn't end up by using one of their images, but they are all super cute!
I have totally switched gears from last week's SFYTT card. My SIL has been working her butt off....literally. She is competing in a body-building competition today and I thought I would make her a "good-luck" card. Maybe I will wrap a few Protein Bars to go along with it, since I am sure some good luck chocolate would truly defeat the purpose! LOL!I have had this stamp set since I was a guest designer for PTI, but I never used it. I thought it would be perfect for my card today. I also pulled out some retired SU! paper that I have had forever, but it really worked nicely for the "feel" I was trying to achieve.

Everything is pretty straightforward, but I did add a few details that I thought added to the design. I decided to dig into my neglected bucket of Fiskars scissors and add a postage stamp border to the focal square. I also decided to put some stickles on the circles on the bikini and flip-flops. The finishing touch was a simple zig-zag stitch down the side. I had fun making this card and although I love Autumn so much, it was making me sad that summer has come to an end.

You won't want to miss the other gals creations!

Hi Kelly, just fluttering by...my condo is done!!! Now I just have to figure out how to get the energy to get it cleaned up and do all the manually labor to move back in!

Anyway, just love this card and the paper makes me smile...I still have some of that too and I just love it and the feel it gave to your card...wish that bikini would look so good on me but I have a year until next summer, eh? lol! Is it really over? I was just getting in the mood! lol!
